Our family of four returned for a second dip -in six months - into paradise at Surf Simply. Yes, the location is nice but what MAKES the trip is the Surf Simply staff. I don't like all-inclusive vacations but Ru, the owner, has figured out how to cater to you without shackling you. The instruction is the best I've ever had (California, two stops in Hawaii), the food is outstanding (I managed restaurants in Santa Monica) and the accommodations are very nice. Don't worry, if you decide to go here, you will get along with the other guests that go here. Both times we really enjoyed our fellow guests. The varying degrees of surfing experience is not an issue. All levels are taught with ease and excellent results and all guests enjoy themselves and have a positive attitude. This is an awesome trip. I've worked with two outstanding coaches (Jessie the first trip and Crazy Harry the second) and gained an absolute wealth of knowledge each trip. But EVERY coach is awesome. Seriously - they all jump in and add something. Right, Graham? You WILL get better and enjoy the process. Dooooo it. Oh, and do yoga!
